About Us



The 3M Innovation Center has two areas of key focus: first, our customers, and second, our continued commitment to our employees and their professional development.

About the World of 3M Innovation

The centerpiece of the 3M Innovation Center is the World of 3M Innovation. The World of 3M Innovation is comprised of interactive displays, films, presentations and stories that provide us with the opportunity to connect our customers to the depth and breadth of everything that 3M has to offer (e.g., business processes, technologies, products and global connectivity).

A visit to the 3M Innovation Center is tailored to meet the specific goals, interests and needs of your business and customers. A Lotus Notes-based Corporate Visit Management System assists your business unit or staff organization through each step of the planning process – from the visit preparation to the visit itself to the key take-away action steps. Contact your business Customer Visit Coordinator to learn more details.
